My buddy just bought a few of these feeders called the Capsule Game Feeder. Uses an auger to take the feed up and throw it out. Fills from the ground and because it's not reliant on gravity to work, makes it impossible for the coons and hogs (here in S. TX) to steal feed.
Not to get into the baiting discussion, but it's the most innovative thing I've seen in years and something I think might work. So far my buddy has had nothing but great things to say about it. Again, aside from the baiting issues (you could start a whole forum on the isse), what do you think? Personally, not having to climb a ladder does it for me
